    Thibs on DSJ

    “He’s been very aggressive. I think each day. He’s gotten better and better. That’s what we’re asking him to do — to run his team, keep us organized, take advantage of what you’re strengths are, your ability to get downhill, force people to collapse, and then make the right play,” Thibodeau said. “He can score the ball. He’s shooting the ball pretty well right now. But he’s making good plays also.”

    Knox and MItch also getting praise... We shall see soon enough...

    I also saw that Thibs was talking up some guys like DSJ. Not sure how much to read into it. Personally, I don’t care who Thibs likes as long as he finds a bunch of guys on this roster he can turn into a respectable rotation.

    Thibs on IQ

    But Knicks combo guard Immanuel Quickley has a not-so-secret weapon to aid him in the transition.

    “The one thing is he’s got a great skill already — he can shoot the ball as well as anyone in the league,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said Wednesday after a training camp practice. “He’s a great shooter. Now it’s learning all the other parts of the league and his team. The defensive part is usually the biggest adjustment for guys coming in. Then, of course, understanding the tendencies of the players and the teams and learning his teammates.

    “The college game is very different from the NBA game. So there’s an adjustment period that you go through. But I love his enthusiasm, great work ethic, great student of the game. He’s in early, he stays late, he comes back at night. He does all the things you would like a rookie to do.”

    1st preseason game is tomorrow (Friday) at 7PM. Weird to see the team without any Summer League games to get a look at the young guys first.

    Knicks waive Skal Labissiere. Apparently, this gives us his G League rights.

    1st preseason game starts in a little under 2 hours.

    Just read that Knicks project to have most cap space in 2021 offseason with over 60 million. Will we have anyone worth spending it on who wants to come here? I guess no point in worrying about it now.

    We really need to show something this year and i believe we can definitely attract free agents. If Thibs can get the players to defend well and compete hard every game, the record we finish with isnt the most important thing

    What im scared of is will we sign the right player? Last thing we need is another player approaching the end of their prime or coming off a major injury

    Where is the DSJ mention above at? He did not perform in the 2 preseason games!

    After the 2nd preseason game .. DSJ & Knox would've been CUT (Fired or traded for a future 2nd round pick) by any winning NBA head coach. But Thibs knew the reckless performance the Knicks team played last night were all his Fault & Blame.
    Thibs coaching really needed Butlers creative performance in Minnesota to win games.

    Old man Thibs & his new coaching-staff actually did nothing to improve Fiz/Miller type of LOSER coaching for the Knicks. The Thibs Knicks first preseason game win was an accident by two Lottery teams. Coach Casey 14 man rotation prove Casey is the better coach than Thibs.
    The Knicks played two preseason game without any chemistry, or offensive-plays in any of the lineups Thibs put on the court.
    The Lottery Pistons coach Casey ran a defensive-zone that almost beat the Thibs poor coached Knicks by 20 points last night.
    Coach Thibs non-movement of the ball on offense, and NO Picks for any player moving without the ball made the Knicks players miss over 60% of their shots last night to a zone defense, plus made DSJ look like a BUST PG that does not belong on a NBA court. And Knox & Bullock foolishness to score throwing-up a 1-6 & 2-8 shooting night, instead of pass, and run to pick for their teammate was an absurd performance from the two shooting a (3-14 night).
    This is a preseason without any rookie summer-ball .....
    Thibs did not have one offensive play written up for any of the young-core players (or rookies) in two preseason game. However .. the 30 plus minute Randle & Barrett combine for taking 28 shots, 10 reb, 7 assist, and 10 turnovers in the 2nd preseason game. To show us Knicks fans a repeat of last season two Ball-Hogging Knicks performance that dominated the ball for 30 plus minute .... Randle & RJ ball-domination last season gave us a 21-45 season.
    We are DOOMED for another consecutive LOSER season.
    As if owner Dolan is betting on every Knicks opponent to win in the 2020-21 season.

    If Rose & Thibs had any CLOUT in the FA market it would've happen already before the start of the 2020-21 season. Rose/Perry/Thibs are all NBA LOSERS today !!!

    DSJ is beyond atrocious. He’s barely a D-league player. How anybody thought it was a smart decision to trade for that trash is something Congress needs to investigate. What was Mills thinking?

    Like you said, smart orgs cut their losses. NYK are trying to showcase him for a trade, instead of preparing somebody more viable for the season. What a waste of minutes that could be used to get IQ up to speed.

    At this point... I would cut him and be done with it.

    “Dennis Smith does not see the floor,” said one NBA scout who witnessed both games. “He’s probably not a true point guard.”

    Another NBA scout who watched both games was unimpressed with both Smith and 2018 lottery pick Kevin Knox, who is struggling with his outside shot.

    “Dennis just looks awful as a player and teammate,” the scout said. “He has zero feel. You question his vision.”

    As for Knox, the moment they took Toppin... Knox is a goner. You now have 2 inefficient offensively inclined PFs that like to play on the perimeter, and who can’t defend.

    The Knicks have waived Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

    He was always considered a long-shot to make the regular-season roster. There shouldn't be a huge market for MKG with his glaring lack of offense.

    Never got to see MKG at all in the preseason due to illness from what I heard, so it was a real long shot for him to make the team. He better be picked up off the waiver wire otherwise his career as an NBA player may be over.
